1983 Mazda 323 Review
1983 Mazda 323 1500 Sl — Performance is terrible, but that said it is already 25 years old. With a major engine overhaul it should be better in terms of performance. Build quality isn't too bad - nothing major has broken down but it has quite a few rattles. It's brown inside and out so nothing good about appearance. With other shock absorbers and coil springs the steering has been sharped up considerably but there is quite a bit of understeer...
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Sharp steering, doesn't break down
Cons: Slow, stolen :(

Own a Yellow SP20 version of he car. It's okay but it is a pain that it uses 95RON fuel. Great grip and brakes but there is a few reliability issues with the mini coils and the we've had the gearbox... Read More
